Marlene was a "Cowgirl"...and love being a cowgirl, she love riding horses and was a member of the Elm Springs Riding Club, she was "Rodeo Queen" one year. She love telling me about her cowgirl days and I love hearing about them just as much. She was sweet, soft spoken and pretty as she could be, and enjoyed the truly simple things in life. We always had fun the times we spent together...having a hot cup of coffee or an ice cold coca-cola, I was so very proud to call her my cousin. She has left a huge void in the lives of all those who knew Marlene and Loved her.

She was a member of the Mason Valley Baptist Church.



GONE FROM OUR SIGHT, BUT NEVER OUR MEMORIES. GONE FROM OUR TOUCH, BUT NEVER OUR HEARTS.


THE BEAUTY OF A COWGIRL

The beauty of a Cowgirl
Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries,
Or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a cowgirl must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a cowgirl is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a cowgirl,
Is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
And the beauty of a cowgirl with passing years-only grows.
